FUSE TV - Listen: Lady Gaga Releases First 'ARTPOP' Single "Applause"

After an exciting weekend of pop music leaks—Katy Perry's "Roar" and a quick snippet of Lady Gaga's "Applause"—Gaga decided to pull a fast one on all of us and release her first ARTPOP single a week ahead of schedule. Hey, we'll take it!

"DUE TO HACKERS AN ABUNDANCE OF LOW/HIGH QUALITY LEAKS...WE ISSUE THIS POP MUSIC EMERGENCY...MONSTERS SPREAD THE WORD, Gaga tweeted. "MY NEW SINGLE 'APPLAUSE' IS OUT TODAY AND CAN BE HEARD ON UNITED STATES RADIO IN 15 MINUTES. INTERNATIONAL RADIO TO FOLLOW." All caps, you guys. Emergency indeed.

Gaga fans might feel like they've heard "Applause" before—it sounds a lot like it could have been a B-side from her first album, The Fame. It's an aggressive dance track, very industrial and very produced. Also, anyone else getting a David Bowie vibe?

"Applause" is EDM-inspired for sure. The song is for the club, the elliptical or anywhere in between (that has strobe lights and lasers, of course). And we can expect more where that came from. Gaga collaborator and EDM DJ Zedd told Rolling Stone about ARTPOP, "We didn't try to make an EDM album—but, at the same time, we didn't try not to make an EDM album."

Plus, you tell us... Whose new single is better - Katy's or Gaga's? Vote now!
